Koch Brothers Lose Their Investment


Not much of a ROI for the Koch Brothers from this guy.

I never understood how anyone could see Walker as the POTUS/CiC.  Apparently a lot of people couldn't either. 

Walker bragged that because he faced down unions in his state, he'd be able to easily handle ISIS. That inane comparison was an insight into his overblown assessment of his abilities. Wisconsin teachers are not the same as ISIS -- Duh! Then there was his absurd statement about building a wall between the U.S. and Canada -- he said that was a reasonable idea. Right. But he never explained how he would, as POTUS, get the wall built in the Great Lakes that share a border with the U.S. and Canada. Details, details! 

You've been beamed OUT of the race, Scottie.  Buh-bye!

The question now is... Where does the Koch machine now funnel the cash? Jeb Bush? Carly Fiorina? Marco Rubio? Ted Cruz?

So many choices.

Dave Miller said...

RN... that is part of the question... others include whether this is the sign the consolidation of the establishment behind a single candidate has finally begun and are they willing to shoot a few candidates to get Trump in a one on one cage match to the death.

It is as if we are watching some macabre version of last man standing gets the prize.

The real question is whether it will be worth anything once the candidates get done calling all immigrants rapists, vermin, criminals, lazy, and what not. And that is before we get to now hoped for religious tests from some candidates and many partisan base voters.

Perhaps they all will quit and we will get a democratic president by default.

@the cartoon on your banner.

The wingnutters are already calling the Pope the anti-Christ pagan Commie all because he tells people to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ: Help the poor, the sick, the homeless and love your neighbor. This is blasphemy to the right wingers who prefer the televangelists who beg their people for money so they can buy jet planes and live in $16 million mansions.

You know, the real Jesus Christ message. /sarcasm/

Walker was supposed to be the front runner in this contest, and now he's out. Trump isn't doing too well since his cowardly reaction to the idiot who spoke to him in New Hampshire and said Obama wasn't an American and wanted to kill him. Trump is essentially a grown up spoiled loud mouth brat who has the base of the GOP loving him. Can anyone imagine how dumb those people have to be to support a dipsh*t like Trump?

Hopefully over the next few weeks we will see more decide they are not electable, Trump being one of those. Now it comes down to all about the money. Why is Graham, Pataki and the rest of the under 5 percenters still in the race, Money.

With the vacuum of competent world leaders we need a president who can be a world influence not just the one for the nut jobs. I don't see another leader like Reagan in the pack but you never know.

Jerry Critter said...

skud - "t I don't see another leader like Reagan in the pack but you never know."

You mean you are looking for a leader that will

1. Raise taxes many times
2. Triple the federal debt
3. Give amnesty to illegal aliens
4. Arm Iran
5. Raise unemployment above 10%

We need another Reagan like we need another hole in the head. Be glad you don't see another Reagan in the clown car.

Rational Nation USA said...

The republican party (with the possible exception of Kasich) has no candidate running that could effectively lead the nation. In fact skudrunner the tea party and neo cons have turned the GOP into a laughingstock.

Ducky's here said...

You forgot a few, Jerry.

1. Covert war in Central America

2. AIDS leadership

3. Arming Iraq after chemical weapons attack on Kurds

4. Failure to counter terrorism in Beirut

5. Support for apartheid (along with gal pal Thatcher)

6. S & L collapse

... the list is extensive. None of the fiscal prudence the Teabags harp on.
I will ask skud why he faults Obama generating a stimulus by borrowing at a cost loer than the rate of inflation but Saint Ronnie Raygun pulling out the credit card at 12 - 15% is just the coolest thing.

Any answer skud?

Rational Nation USA said...

skudrunner remembers the peacetime economic expansion under Reagan.

Jerry Critter said...

Just think of the economic growth we would have had if Obama had spent enough to triple the deficit?

skudrunner said...

You about nailed it Duck except you forgot economic prosperity and manufacturing jobs in the US.

I agree with JC, look where we would be if Obama had tripled the spend. Since the "stimulus" created no lasting jobs and shovel ready was a catch phrase, triple the spend would have resulted in triple the no jobs and triple the debt.

One thing hasn't changed since LBJ and his government give away. We still have the same percentage of people classified as poor just more of them.

BB-Idaho said...

Polls in Wisconsin show that 78% of voters there think Walker is unqualified to
be president. Ruining one state was apparently enough.

Jerry Critter said...

Given that such a high percentage don't believe he is qualified for president, it would have been interesting if they had asked if they believe he was qualified for governor.
